    It used to be that a lot of thought went into placing items that people run in and out to get in the back of the store. The idea was to hope other items got your attention. I think this was abandoned...

    If never painted I would cover the floor. Wet the ceiling with a pump sprayer a section at a time and scrape it off. Roll all of it up in black trash bags and dispose of one at a time. I wouldn't...

    If you don't need to borrow the money it may get better as interest rates rise. Maybe by then materials will normalize. I would wire and install interior myself but when I run the numbers in my head...

    I found a stand, the kind with the splayed leg from an old craftsman, on my way home from a run. I added some ply to the top and put a ply cart under it. It now holds my drill press on top and...

    Sounds like a great guy, he predates my entrance into woodworking for the most part. Sounds like I need to put some his stuff on my book and video list. RIP David.

    I say pick a quality tool platform, voltage and standardize on it. Who needs a bank of different chargers and batteries to go with them.

    My brain wants to see horizontal on the drawer fronts, I have no idea why but it looks better to me.

    Chopped a lot of mortises while making a traditional window this weekend. I do prefer a mortise chisel but regarding size, it is important to select a size that matches the sash pane profile. This...

    My employees hated the Ridgid cordless tools and wanted Milwaukee cordless tools. That left me with a huge assortment of chargers and tools that as they burn up or fail I just grab another. The only...

    Paul Sellers seems to prefer using a bench chisel, me I like a mortice chisel. I only have two, they are mm but I think equate to 1/2" and 1/4". Never felt a need to buy more but once the need...

    Most coatings that go over concrete require de-greasing and etching for a good bond. Industrial coatings for garages are the thing now, might want to check the prep sheet for those.

    I rest, not slam down on the sole. Bench is wood and so is the plank I will drive the blade across hundreds of times. I can hit metal tools carelessly laying it down (which I don't) or by bumping the...

    I am 60 and eyeing and looking forward to retirement. I am also eyeing a 1100 point dip in the Dow so owning my own company the date is a moving target. Due to SSA and other factors I am thinking 65...

    I can't imagine a painter removing that much detail, ouch! A new molding is not quite the same. If the window sweats it will eventually destroy the molding and possibly the window with that many new...

    Get some more cherry and use it on the doors and drawer fronts where contrast looks like it was intentional. I am ignorant as to how, but I have heard of people placing cherry in the sun to change...

    Think of a shooting board as a way to true up the end of stock by thousands of an inch. The overall length shouldn't change much unless you are way off in the first place. Shooting is not a real easy...

    There is a bit of a learning curve to bending conduit but probably some YouTube viewing can help. MC is a little harder to make look "neat" on the wall but can be done. Not sure what you are mounting...

    I finished my all hand tool window sash build. A neighbor had a replacement window in a historic house that had rotted. I looked at it and said "I can build a replacement". I bought a door and window...

    Let it dry a bit before cutting to size. Make your project and let it air dry in place for a few months and be ready to paint. Forcing it to dry fast is asking for the wood to protest. Just don't...

    My sympathies on anyone going through this. To the OP I think it is time to lawyer up to get their attention.
